A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have a love for one another.” – John 13:34-35

We pray you are doing well. In the book of Esther, there is a powerful illustration of God's sovereignty. God is in control of all things, and He will use even the evil plans of men to accomplish His purposes. God used Haman's pride and arrogance to bring about the downfall of His enemy and the salvation of His people. The story of Esther is a reminder that God is always at work, even when things seem hopeless. We can trust Him to bring about His purposes, even when we cannot see how He is doing it.
